initially considered -- conservative influence the liberal environment. >> another good question. we found most of these students came in thinking of themselves as generically republican or conservative although there were a few that had moved toward greater conservatism but we also found that in college students further refined how they referred to themselves as conservatives so people who initially identified as republican or conservative then became fiscal conservatives or catholic conservatives. one of our interviewees, thinking of one person in particular referred to herself as the crunchy conservative. she is very pro-life but she is pro environment, pro social justice, some other ways. so things get messier once they get to college. >> please join me in thanking amy binder for this presentation.

groundbreaking research to fight disease, protect the environment and develop new technology. it enhances the administration's management efforts to deliver a government that is more efficient and supportive of economic growth. and it will expand opportunity for all-americans. it doubles the maximum value of the earned income tax credit to encourage people to enter the workforce. and makes high quality preschool available to every four year old. and drive workforce training. it will focus on the primary drivers of long term debt and deficits. it builds on the forms of the affordable care act and continues to slow health care cost growth while improving the quality. it will curb tax breaks that benefit the wealthiest. it calls for pro-growth immigration reform. the deficit has been cut in half under the president's leadership. by paying for the new investments and tackling the true challenges, the budget continues with progress reducing deficits as a share of gdp to 1.6% by 2024. with regard to the issues of stabilizing our debt to gdp ratio that is in 2015 and we start a declining path. t

[applause] >> do you equate self awareness to consciousness or is there a difference? >> i think there is a difference for the computer to be self aware it does not need to have consciousness' the way we understand it but to have a model of the environment. and also hast to know added deep level programming. all the nuances of consciousness are beyond us in the short term. we don't know enough about consciousness but everything else that we do hold the other parts of the toolkit i think are more within reach. >> what about the possibility of the programmers are smart but fallible will come up with a technology that just as if you turn on the comput

see in the world bank called the enabling environment that is a socially the trust of the businesses in the rule of law. and there's not a shortage of money. they are regional investors who would like to put money into the question is can they trust the rules of the game to do that and that govern in particular. minerals are going to be a magic bullet, but the oil and gas resources that have been discovered recently are quite immense and it isn't inconceivable that in ten to 15 years we underwrite the cost of sustaining stability and services within the country. in conclusion let's move from the quick fix is in a magic bullet and understanding the peace and stability and governance would be at the peace of stability and it is the many small wins rather than the deal that would be liver on that for the afghans at the question is can a politics deliver what the afghans believe in more than 90% of the leaving the law and order that future to realize it. >> thank you. david? >> thank you very much, andrew. it's a great pleasure to be here and i will join you and others in thinking asap i
the boundary. in the political environment we are not likely to return to levels of spending favored by the most ardent defense proponents and organizations like aei on the hill or frankly in the pentagon. now the budget plan announced monday would provide $115 billion more over the next five years then sequester level funding. if it is a realistic puzzle that reflect strategic as well as the resources the department might reasonably expect to receive albeit with strong leadership and cooperation in the congress. if enacted it will help remedy some of the damage article is by sequestration albeit with continued training and maintenance shortfalls in the near term and potential cuts in the future. if the $26 billion provided by the administration's proposed opportunity growth and security fund is also approved for fy2015 the military's near-term readiness picture improves significantly. the budget plan and associated proposals divide a sustainable path towards shaping the force able to protect the nation and fulfill the president's defense strategy. albeit with some additional risk. a
had. it was in a totally different environment. and now i have two, i have a congressional blackberry and a campaign iphone plus a wireless beeper i use up here. i've got high definition television sets. you name it, my 8-year-old son has a laptop computer and a tablet. a whole different ball game. and the way we use what we now call the internet, the way we use wireless communications, they all need to be brought up to speed, and if we can get any bipartisanship at all in the next congress, i think you'll see us do that. >> host: what kind of time frame are you looking? >> guest: i'm chairman emeritus, this is the chairman -- fred upton, greg walden, i'm a spear carrier. but i hope to be, i plan to be very involved. i would hope that with the right environment we could do a bill in the next congress. and in this congress mr. walden and mr. upton have both told me personally and they've said pluckily they're going to be -- publicly they're going to be lots of hearings to set the groundwork to do it. >> host: brendan sasso. >> another issue you've been involved in a lot is online gambl
for lebanon's geostrategic environment. if the east and west agree that this must be a peace offul zone because there are important resources here, now actually moving forward on what's the economic value of this, the first thing is to figure out how to get it to market. the market is effectively europe. the original approach was or the plan was certainly to take it over land to turkey which would mean through syria as long as the war there is raging, you cannot do that. but that is the most cost effective i way. and i would indicate that part of the war for syria has to do with who's going to control the future of eastern mediterranean energy. the other way to do it which israel is exploring is whether to do it through lng, you know, whether cyprus and put it on ships or possibly from cyprus an undersea pipeline to turkey and then turkey gets it to market. so it gets into a lot of geopoll to tucks and relations. -- geopoll ticks and relations. if lebanon could get this to market and sell it, that would be -- well, the energy itself, the gas, if it's extracted, the first use of it is di
as less than important. the current command environment makes it hard to keep outside influences away from all criminal cases in a command regardless of the commander's view or the unit's view of them as commanders. removing all judicial punishment decisions from the command will keep them clear of all repercussions, including to their command, their career, and their general morale of the unit. loafing judicial punishment with commanders is not just a problem in the mishandling of sexual assault cases with the victim blaming. i have experienced, as well as others, a command environment is simply not a top -- not a top-down environment. my new -- a new commander may take command in an established structure, and the disruption of the structure regardless of how honorable their intentions can lead challenges to that command. this removal of the judicial punishments from the command would remove conflicts both to and from the commanders. this also prevents a commander from lessening the charges to whatever keeps it in the command, or at its lowest levels, either out of concern that the accuse
. this is what the environment secretary said, and i quote, people get very emotional about this. people should just accept the climate has been changing for century. he refuses to be briefed on climate change. the energy minister when asked about climate change said this -- you're not going to draw me on that. i haven't had time to get into the climate change debate. [laughter] he is the energy minister, mr. speaker. will he clarify? is a habit of climate change deniers in this government? >> this is a new approach to prime minister's questions. you come to the house of commons and praise the prime minister for his commitment to climate change. [shouting] i like the new style but i thought -- i think this is much more refreshing. this government has a solid track record of cutting carbon, negotiating internationally, to of investing in nuclear, the biggest renewable energy program that we've seen in our countries history. for the first time in a long, we are on track to meet up renewable target. perhaps he would like to get up again and congratulate me for this excellent record on the environm
in our increasingly polarized national political environment and even within the republican party itself, we're seeing that the styles of politics is becoming, are becoming as important as the ideas of politics. insofar as particular styles can lead to animosity, gridlock, a lack of compromise. and i'll open my discussion of conservative college students' styles with a couple of vignettes from our data. so it is 2007, and is members of the college republicans at western flagship have just staged an event called the affirmative action bake sale. i know this is no stranger to you at berkeleyment now, the bake sale is a well known piece of political theater that conservative students use at many universities across the country selling cookies at a higher price to white students than they do to, say, african-american and latino students. the bake sale is said to highlight the insidious effects of race-based affirmative action. it has a point of view, but when students at western talk about what it's like to actually stage the event, it's clear that they revel in the sheer fun and confrontati
dispute settlement procedures and rules and enforcement of new obligations upon environment and labor. now, let me turn very quickly to the ttip negotiations. i have a little lesson that i can say on this because they are at an earlier stage of negotiations. though they are also important because the transatlantic economic relationship is our most significant commercial relationship. it's not our most significant trade partnership. the tpp actually is more valuable in that front, but we are talking about over a trillion dollars of two-way trade in goods and services between the united states and the european union, and over $4 trillion in foreign direct investment in each other's market. so it is a huge, huge adventure. the ttip negotiators seek to eliminate tariffs and substantial reduce nontariff barriers in trade and investment. that's a traditional part of the agenda. but as miriam noted, there's also ambitious goals with regard to coordinating or harmonizing regulatory policies affecting trade in goods and services. and that's what the biggest payoff could come very hard to estimate t
at an environment and public works committee hearing on adapting to climate change argued that we'd all be better off if the glaciers just went away. if they just melted away. after all, he told the committee, we evolved at the equator in a climate where freezing weather did not exist. it could be said that frost and ice are the enemies of life. he continued, "obviously if the glaciers stop melting, there will be no more meta-wall street from them -- no more melt water from them, so are you saying that you want the glaciers to stop melting? en this where would the irrigation water come from i say, let the glaciers melt." that's the witness the republicans put up. let the glaciers melt. i guess he missed the difference between seasonal melting, whose annual rhythms fill our streams and rivers for drinking water and fishing and farming and glaciers outright melting away. now, mr. president, there's another little trick the deniers like to play when it's or a little snow falls here in washington or back in their home states, they say, how could there be global warming when it is cold out? and, yes,
asking why he hated the environment because that makes sense. i wasn't even pregnant, by the way. so i try to be very honest about the fact that i am a person and although i did stick with my husband through some really difficult times i am not a saint. i did not nail lacrosse myself pendragon around with me. i'm a human being and have my own foibles and i also want to make sure people know there are resources out there to help. if you or a loved one are struggling to you can call veterans crisis line at 800-273-talk, press one for immediate assistance 24 hours a day. if your spouse is struggling with pt s d and becoming violent you should call the domestic violence help line. you should not suffer in silence or alone. and if you are looking for a way to serve veterans or looking for resources in your local community, you can use the national resource directory which is on line and has a vast compilation of resources that are available. if you are a military family member you can look up blooms of the stock families on line and see the resources they have available to all military fami
environment, and i would hope that everyone understand that it is all about order. and if we don't have order, we cannot provide programs. we're constantly looking down institutions. since the hearing in 2012, we have restricted housing population reduction by 25 perce percent. we have gone from 13.5 percent to 6.5 percent. so reductions are occurring. we are only interested in placing people in restrictive housing when there is justification. we have 20,000 gang members in our system. they are watching this hearing. they are watching our testimony very, very closely for the reason being if they see we will lower standards and not hold the individuals accountable, it puts the staff and inmates at risk. and this is why i mentioned in my oral statement, we are looking at staff being injured and harmed but our staff is putting their lives on the line to protect the american public. and we have inmates within the population who are being harmed by these individuals who have no respect, i mean no respect for other's when it comes to their safety. we cannot afford, at any time, to say that for thos
)-right-paren so they are savvy in the global media environment. >> if they become more influential in the post 14 afghanistan or if they are candidates that are sympathetic and win a seat or two if they are going to be a part of the game or if they are going to be fighting, which i guess they are in some places. if they might somehow get engaged in governing, could they possibly tolerate other voices? can be mature to the level they allow other people to speak as well as them in a more serious afghanistan than the one they ran previously. >> the short answer of that is probably not. there's a lot of wishful thinking that has gone on about the telegram. you could imagine that a woman's are in the political process but they are a relatively small part of that equation. i think the single biggest wild card is what the pakistanis do a serious military operation in north was there a -- wasserstein and the people that have been told has reached the point where the sharif government has said we are serious and that could change for the telegram if they no longer have a safe haven or they
of all technological environment. he was so important he called him my boy. he came to the united states and worked under this program that at the time i did not know was called "operation paperclip." how did this work? have you go to having the pentagon as a boss? and when he retired in the '70s he was given the distinguished civilian service award which is the highest award that the department of defense can give to a non uniformed person. to understand "operation paperclip" you really must go back to the fall of 1944. that was a very dark time. this was a rise and fall of the third reich. landing at normandy pushing to munich and berlin. among the soldiers are scientist with the u.s. military. they are part of a secret mission to find what they call atomic biological chemical weapons. abc weapons. the real threat but city will who was the head of the operation was a particle physicist learn to sitting in the abandoned apartment in november 1944 that the atomic program telling him his minister of armaments atomic science is jewish science. said don't concentrate on that. i am paraphras
into the wrong hands in the middle of a very volatile security environment? >> mr. chairman, in lebanon, much as we have in many other countries, we have an office of defense cooperation in beirut. their primary purpose truly is to ensure that we have the appropriate safeguards, and that were performing the appropriate end-user monitoring is what we call it when we provide foreign military sales of equipment, partner nations. so our u.s. personnel in the office of defense cooperation in beirut will do that and enhance end-user monitoring to ensure that that equipment is both accounted for and being used properly. >> i found it interesting in the dialogue with the lebanese armed forces their take on the saudi arabia and french potential for receipt of saudi arabia and assistance to purchase french military assets. they said they liked the was equipment a lot better, basically is what the lebanese armed forces was saying. but i gather from your testimony, general, you do like the more partners the better, the more systems the better. you don't find that saudi arabia provision of 3 billion to pu
and the environment. i want to leave plenty of time for a robust q&a session, so i'll just briefly highlight four of these agreements that help make up part of a much broader trade agenda. first, on tpp, the united states trade representative just with regard up meetings with trade ministers from 11 other countries that took place in singapore where they made progress on an ambitious next generation trade investment partnership that spans the asia-pacific and that reflects u.s. economic priorities and values. the tpp as we call it will strengthen u.s. ties with a market of nearly 500 million people that represents nearly 40% of global gdp and has a growing middle class. according to the peterson institute, tpp would generate an additional $124 billion in u.s. exports, and that's just with our current 11 partners. i call tpp a next generation agreement because it is raising the bar over past agreements. for example, by pursuing the highest labor and environmental standards ask by strengthening ipr provisions to encourage greater innovation. second, tpp is taking on new issues that have never befor
vendors will need to be isolated to provide a secure environment for both staff and offenders. it strikes me that a great many people would think that solitary confinement, particularly for an extended amount of time is not an appropriate punishment for relatively minor infractions, but it could well be a necessary tool for those violent inmates and may pose a real threat to the safety of other inmates or guards. these are the members of this panel has interacted with the criminal-justice system in different capacities. as carmen in mr. thibodaux as inmates. mr. brouwer administering. mr. dear roche administering and helping bring hope and redemption to those incarcerated mr. levin studying in the important justice issues. the question that i would ask of all five of you is in your judgment based upon the different experiences you have had, is there an appropriate role for solitary confinement? is there a need for it? and in what circumstances it at all? and i would welcome the views of all five witnesses. >> in my mind right now, yes. but in a limited sense. that is because i have said t
the damages done to the environment. i agree that maybe colorado may get around this but it's expensive and doing a lot of damage to the environments the way it's being done in california. >> guest: as it turns out i actually did see that piece and because the people, the legalizers would say that is why this stuff needs to be legalized. if you got into the wilderness of california where they are growing the stuff yes they are using tremendous amounts of pesticides herbicides who knows what that the environmeenvironme ntal destruction out there is quite phenomenal. this is marijuana growth that is outside the law so people who are legalizers would say that's one more reason to ring it under some sort of state jurisdiction because that way the environmental benefits to legalizing marijuana. it's a great feast. if people are interested in this as an issue go on "mother jones." it's a very good piece. >> host: there's a tweet from one or viewers who says that in the girl scouts to sell cookies in front of stores. they will make a fortune. jokes aside. >> guest: which is what happened last
occur. >> i agree in the environment of low interest rates especially when it prevails for a long time and we have had a long period of low interest rates can give rise to behavior that poses a threat to the financial stability. and therefore we need to be looking at that very carefully. we are doing that in a very thorough way i believe. we are monitoring measures of asset prices and whether or not they appear to be diverging from the historical norms, namely it's hard trying to spot any of the price bubbles that might be emerging looking at the leverage that might be built up in the leverage can be very dangerous to the financial system and pose stability risks. we are looking at the trend is in leverage and credit growth to see whether or not that has potentially worrisome trends. in addition to that we are looking at a stress test at financial institutions and a low interest rate environment. we have to worry about whether they are appropriately dealing with interest rate risk. we have been looking at that and in fact the current stress test includes a special portion -- >> i'm goi
in your own environment, you've got a tremendous amount of support for this book. >> guest: yeah. sure did. c-span: and your own daughters worked with you for 10 years. >> guest: yeah. c-span: tell us about laura and what--what role she played in this. >> guest: well, it's interesting that you ask that question. laura is a professional woman. she'd just gotten her phd at the university of michigan in latin american history. she's married to a costa rican and now lives in costa rica and she's got three kids. i'm extremely proud of her 'cause she's, you know, one of these kind of super moms who's raising a family and taking care of her mother-in-law there in costa rica and also writing. and we are very close, personally; have been for a long time. she's been the person who's been my most severe critic, 'cause we know each other well enough that she feels free to say things that people might not say, about, 'gee, that's a dumb way of phrasing that idea or--or i think i would toss out that chapter entirely.' and we--at the time i was writing this book, she was also doing her dissertation and w
it is a question of what the ifc in the world bank called the enabling environment essentially the trust of businesses and there's not a shortage of money. there are enormously wealthy afghans in regional investors who would like to put money in but the question is can they trust in the rule of law to do that? the rules that govern the extract is section particularly. there will not be a magic bullet that the oil and gas resources being discovered recently are quite immense and it's not inconceivable that in 10 to 15 years they can more than underwrite the cost of sustaining stability and services within the country. so in conclusion i think let's move from looking for quick fixes and magic olefson understanding peace and stability and governance will be a key part of the stability and rather than a victory or deal that will deliver for afghans and the question can the politics deliver that 90% of afghans who believe and law and order and what that future can realize. >> david. >> thank you very much and it's a great pleasure to be here. i join you and others in thanking usip, voa and us
. and the second problem has been the environment for safety of media workers is not that, still not good. there's still a lot of intimidation going on, particularly when cases become personal. and then those who are covered will go after the media workers and start -- [inaudible] we have had examples of in this the past. and the thursday -- the third problem has been lack of sufficient education in the area of investigative journalism among afghan media workers which is a pity because in afghanistan which corruption makes a huge problem, there's a huge need for investigative journalism. >> you know, that segways to another subject. let me ask you about this, james, and it's sort of our business in a way and also the business of mr. anzar here which is state broadcasting, you know, government broadcasting. mr. anzar's rta is moving to more of a public broadcasting model and changing the way they think about their work. i guess the question for you and i and maybe others in the room here, what's the appropriate role for the bbc and voa and other international broadcasters that also broadcast into
as they transition from childhood environments into adulthood. this budget makes critically important investments in behavioral health and substance-abuse treatment and prevention. for example, to increase the number of licensed health professionals with addiction specialist and we continue to invest in the workforce the with the now is the type of initiative. these investments trade 5,000 additional mental-health professionals and increase the health service corps. edition the budget invest $26 million with the cbc to prevent prescription drug misuse and abuse and overdose. the budget to get safety and security of taxpayers alike it includes $50 million of primary-care practice says nursing homes and other health care settings. it puts $25 million into older justice initiatives which are designed to reduce the negative effects of abuse, neglect and exploitation that far too many senior suffer. invest $428 million in the medicaid integrity program. both of which are proven to deliver results and fighting fraud. every dollar we invest returns $8.10 of the money we recover. we have announced we rec
not occur to anyone anywhere in the country to launch a single bank? because this interest-rate environment and the regulatory burden is not viable. the epa is causing enormous headwinds shutting down coal-fired power plants that shuts down the utility for our ability to produce with peak demand and shuts down coal mines and even if you are not in the coal-fired power business come on lot of folks are into heavy industry and they describe the epa policy is one step by 1,000 permits. in general we have too much subsidization of energy whether windmills or companies like solyndra we don't take advantage of free could or should of our natural resources. but the giant shining example of regulatory overkill in my mind is obamacare. it is fundamentally flawed based on the notion in part of the payment system loaded with disincentives to work to implant and very problematic. if you take the combination of the regulatory avalanching and the policy i ask myself is a wonder the economy has grown at all. even at 2 percent we should be impressed considering what the economy is up against. now that i ha

into a different environment next year where rural hospitals don't need that kind of assistance. i was pleased to be the principle response sore of the medicare audit improvement act. sometimes this is called the rack, and from the middle ages until about 17 # 00 in europe. the rick was widely used, and the purpose was just to stretch you until you timely admitted whatever had to be admitted so they stop stretching the rack, and seems to me there's an awful lot of that principle in the recovery audit program where the recovery audit program, particularly for small hospitals or hospitals that can't just perm inaptly have somebody or a team dedicated to this do not fight back, and even if they do, the fight takes so long that it appears over and over again the goal of the federal government is to get you to give up or get you to negotiate quickly to get it over with, and unfortunately, generally, in the settlements whether it's here or other federal agencies, is the very aggressive stand early in the discussion. we have more time, more lawyers, and more money than you do settle or continue to fi
for a solitary confinement has left some sense reductions environment to of violence, restraint shares, inmates can themselves up which used to happen every week. almost totally eliminated as a result of these changes. reducing the duration. those that used to go there for drugs, they may still go, but if they test claim of bacon graduate out of solitary confinement and a summit is being kept for more than 72 hours a decision is reviewed by the commissioner. i also want to know that one of the keys in texas to reduce in solitary confinement has been the gain enunciation program. announcing their gang. i also want to point out that using sanctions and incentives behind bars is a way to provide for incentives that the inmates to be a better which therefore reduces the need for solitary confinement. one of the models of the parallel universe model. the longer curfew. does that ms. b gave have been denied privileges such as making donegals and access to the mail and other things. this creates a positive incentive. we notice things like the white hope program. there is a 24 hours timeout. we have to
the planet but that's cool. you're in a region like the middle east where multiproliferation environment where everybody hasn't policy and nobody trusts anyone us. that is the most unstable environment. that was "open range." the hero goes into the town and there are 14 side in town. one person starts shooting and everybody starts shooting everybody else. if you have a nuclear-armed middle east that is the must dangerous situation imaginable. that is the great fear. but i can absolutely tell you that is where we're headed. nobody has a plan to get away from that. these negotiations will not only not stop the nuclear program, they will insure that the next president will have even more difficult challenge keeping iran from going nuclear. that is one of the, the greatest legacy of this administration. sir? >> ross kaminsky from boulder county and lpr 2005. one of the big things we'll hear in the upcoming primary season, john mccain versus rand paul. how should americans think about what foreign engage amentses, what foreign entertaining fellments are actually in our national interests vers

"fox news" was hammering the united nations and france and remember the whole freedom fries thing quick they were hammering al-jazeera the airbase television network's hostile anti-american. michael moore was a "fox news" enemy. they develop these characters on the opposing side and then they would build up their characters on the pro-side. george w. bush as the hero. they develop these story lines and repeat them through the day. they would start on fox and friends and go to the news hour and continued to prime-time. you see that going back to tbn with the repetition of stower
of the interviews he lost over that part of the biography. but he was working there and he was in the environment and he was soaking up the techniques that 20 years later he applied at fox news. it is classic and driving the message. >> guest: they develop story lines into the health care debate was a classic fox news story line going back in the time of the iraq war and the run-up to the iraq war. >> host: what do you mean by good guys, bad guys? >> guest: they develop adversaries to the case of iraq. fox news was hammering the united nations and remember the whole freedom thing they were handling the television network as hostile and michael moore was a fox news editor and they were on the opposing side and then they would build up the characters on the pro side that president bush was the hero. they repeat them and go through the news hour and they are continuing at prime time and they discuss how the repetition of the stories can be a powerful propaganda technique. >> host: since he watched msnbc and fox. >> host: user they've been about acorn or solyndra. what would you say to people what do
-dominated environment, but in our country we would have considered her a curator of the small museum which if any of you had been to paris and walked from the concorde to the lewd, you walked right past this building as was the kind of early stage indoor tennis court in the 17th century, and it became the central headquarters for the operation in france and paris in particular, and it wass there bu that the tens of thouss of words stolen from the great collectors and fans and others so many of whom were also dealer families were brought in and they were often photographed in inventory to sign and this is a particularly evil or pernicious element of what they did they puwould assign inventory code to these works of art so rothschild is an example, the number next to it would be the number of items that they had stolen, andd i've seen in the tory numbers up almost 6,000, and even that is an understatement because any of the things the monuments officers found, which michael has done a great job in the '80s writing about a lot of this were jewelry chests that might have hundreds of objects that count as on
the last five years have been really quite a dramatic change in that environment. we have a variety of approaches things that we probably didn't expect what he now in front of us. for instance what are the hereditary factors involved in this disease? it clearly runs in families. we have gone from knowing one risk factor for the late onset type of fun -- alzheimer's disease depending on who you ask and that number is growing and in fact will be growing rapidly this coming year in part because of the fy14 appropriation. we have gone from understanding a lot more and to be able to look at pathways in the brain that are really quite complex and point to other nodes in those pathways that are really important and might he draggable. we have gone from having a few clinical trials focused largely on it bans cases of alzheimer's to what you heard about today where now because we can make a prediction about high-risk and start the treatment earlier just like people have often said, if you try to test statins by waiting until somebody has far advanced congestive heart failure you would assume
an environment of transparency, contributing to rising confidence in the electoral process. the successful voter registration drive begun during the summer of 2013 in which new voters registered by the millions, largely without incident, also demonstrates greater iec capacity. although there is, although there is thus room for optimism in the iec's performance, overt political pressure could of course still derail this progress. fortunately political entities have so far largely refrained from interfering in the electoral preparations and indeed afghan officials have even been disciplined for engaging in political activity. the independent electoral complaints commission is a relatively new institution. permanently established through the passage of a new electoral law. the ecc successfully adjudicated complaints stemming from candidate registrations in october but has since made slower progress. the slow pace of appointing provincial officers delayed the establishment of provincial electoral complaint commission offices and memorandum of understanding between the i.e. c and ecc to colocate in p
and world bank call enabling environment. that is essentially the trust of businesses in the rule of law. it is not a shortage of money. there are enormously wealthy afghans and regional investors would like to put money but the question is can they trust in the rules of the game and world of law to do that. what would be the rules that governor enthe sector in particular. minerals will not be the magic bullet but oil and gas resources discovered recently have been quite immense. it is not inconceivable in 10 to 15 years this can more than underwrite the cost of the sustaining services within the country. so in conclusion i think let's move from looking for the quick fixes and magic bullets understanding that peace and stability, governance will be at the heart of peace and is it stability and small wins will win for the after bans and the question, can the politics deliver something that the 90% of afghans who believe in more than 90% believe in law and order and want that future can realize it. >> thank you. david. >> thank you very much andrew. it is a quite a pleasure to be here. i w
quite a dramatic change in the environment. we learned through a variety of approaches things we probably didn't expect what now be in front of us this soon. for instance what are the hereditary factors involved in this state that runs in families? we have gone from knowing the sort of one risk factor for the onset alzheimer's disease depending on who you ask 19 or 20, and that number is growing and it will be growing rapidly this coming year in part because of the appropriation because we are expanding our ability to do that kind of genetic analysis. we have gone from understanding the player to understanding more about how to be able to look at the pathways in the brain that are quite complex and point to the others in the pathway that are important. we've gone from having a few clinical trials focus largely on advanced cases of alzheimer's to what you heard about today because we can make a prediction about high risk started the treatment earlier just like people have often said and i will say it now if you try to test waiting until somebody had a far advanced congestive heart
advantage are creating an impossible environment for americans to keep their insurance plans or to keep their doctors. even more troubling is that the funds raided from medicare will be spent on the president's flawed health care law. in particular, medicare advantage serves more than 15 million american senior citizens. including some 56,000 mississippians. it is a program that neverrizes market-based competition and patient choice. these are two elements that have made it both popular and successful. nearly one-third of all medicare patients voluntarily enroll in this type of health care plan, and 95% of medicare advantage members rate their quality of care as very high. independent reports show that seniors will see their plans canceled, they'll see higher premiums and fewer choices because of these severe cuts to medicare and medicare advantage. i've heard from health care professionals in mississippi who are concerned about the law's negative impact on patient care. mr. president, i came to the floor earlier this week to speak about the profound human cost of the president's health
with a disability, that they can do that in a tax-free -- i should say a tax-advantaged environment and so they can save over time and do it in a manner that doesn't put them at a disadvantage from a tax standpoint down the road. so sara is a great example of why the able act should pass, and she is doing more than her share to make sure that it does pass, so i'm grateful to sara wolfe for doing that. especially grateful to people like sara who like a lot of us at some point in our lives have to overcome the tragedy. sara lost her mother connie not too long ago to a sudden and rapid illness, but she has been able to -- to deal with that tragedy and still help us day in and day out to get the able act passed. i will highlight one more story and then i will conclude. angie king is a 28-year-old who lives in indianapolis, indiana, and like sara wolfe, she lives with downs syndrome. she has had -- angie has had five different jobs and works five days a week. she works paid positions at kohl's on mondays and at the ymca on fridays. on tuesdays, wednesdays and thursdays, she volunteers for several organi
. this campaign created an environment in which the internal revenue service found it necessary and possible to single out conservative organizations for extra scrutiny. and this has made it impossible for conservative groups to participate in the last two elections and now they're at it again in 2014. there's a short phrase which describes this and i think it is abuse of power. this is all troubling and shocking enough, but now we have a very direct personal attack against a kansas company whose political views some find very objectionable. mr. president, what i find even more offensive is declaring on the floor that opposing views make them -- quote -- "liars." our constitution grants every american the fundamental right to engage in the political process and these folks have done so fully within the bounds of the law. nothing charles and david koch have done or are doing is illegal. their participation, their statements, their work is very far from un-american. quite the opposite is the essence of what it means to be an american. nothing is more fundamental than our constitutional, our wa

complexity could be a target rich environment for authors who might confuse an error for malintent -- malintent. this conversion in october and i think that final rule has been issued to go to the icd-10 code. the providers that i speak to in the 11th district of northwest georgia with big cms to delay this conversion from icd nine two icd-10. >> i would like to say i believe that we have planned work in that area. i cannot address your specific questions now because we need to determine what the issues are but i do believe we have worked that is planned and it's in our work plan. if you would like we could take that question back for people brief you on that from our office that are more familiar with that work. >> if you could elaborate a little bit more dr. cause growth because the providers even say even that meaningful users of electronic medical records, it was my thought that would kind of solve the problem. it would just be automatic and they say no. it's not going to help at all. do any of you have any thoughts about back? >> it's not an issue that we have looked at yet. a

, the largest military installation in the nation with a testing and training environment that is unmatched anywhere -- anywhere in the world. additionally, new mexico's national guard employs roughly 3,800 full- and part-time military earn he will. collectively, there are 18,000 military personnel serving today in new mexico. volunteerism isn't simply a career choice for new mexicans. it is a way of life. it is ingrained in our state's rich -- it is ingrained in our state's rich history of putting country first. the bill before us renews our promise to all of them. to all of those who are willing to day down their life for their country. it provides benefits to all generations of veterans and their families, and it eliminates the cost-of-living adjustment penalty on military retirees. the legislation incorporates bills and ideas from both democrats and republicans to address the disability claims backlog, including one of my own. across new mexico i have heard from too many veterans who are frustrated with the delays they experience in receiving their disability benefits. last june senator

they destroy our environment. madam president, we democrats have a different vision. democrats believe the economy is strongest when the middle complas is vibrant and -- middle class is vibrant and growing. democrats believe that world-class education leads to world-class work and this work is one where people are ready to take on any challenge. right now, madam president, there's at least three people for every job that's available. democrats believe in an even playing field with higher wages, affordable health care, and a secure retirement for every american, so that every american can have a shot at success. i welcome a debate over these competing visions. the average american shares our vision for a country whose success is built on a strong middle class. the koch brothers know americans share our vision for a country whose success is built on a strong middle class. that's why rather than having an honest and fair debate, they're pouring hundreds of millions of dollars into a massive campaign of deception. they manufacture stories, make up facts. they're angry that i'm calling atte
are fully equal that will improve. the research from other countries and other environments shows that as women's equality increases there could be a short-term spike in sexual assault. something we need to be aware of and can be forewarned about not saying it is okay but if we start to see that, pull women out of the infantry, sometimes you have to work through a difficult process. i am confident the military, the army in particular, is working very hard to set the stage for a smooth and successful integration of women into closed jobs and units and that they are working very hard to drive down the rates of sexual harassment and assault but hopefully the military and universities can learn from each other. unfortunately it is a problem that we see much more widely than just within the military. thank you.
